    Dr. Heffron and his medical assistant were amazing!!! I was put at ease from the get go. They were down to earth and made light of my insecurities which helped me feel more comfortable. I felt bad that I was late and apologized to evoke. They treated me with dignity, and thorough detail and effort. I appreciated Dr. Heffron as he took time to review my medical history, answer all of my questions, was gentle and inquisitive during my exam and was candid and honest in his assessments. I want him as my provider from now on!

    Dr. Heffron was INCREDIBLE. This was the first time I felt like a provider was giving me control over my body and the choices I make for my health. He never let transitions to new subjects or the end of the visit without asking what questions I had. He is smart but also inspires patient responsibility. The MA who helped me, goodness, I wish I remembered her name, she was incredible. She made me laugh, was smart, and empathic. She made me feel welcome and safe, as did the provider. I will continue to utilize WHA, not only because of this visit, but because of the kindness and understanding of the staff.

    I have had dr. Ari Hefferon my entire time with your establishment and I have nothing but good things to say. He takes the time to listen but will tell you from your first appointment that he will go over everything with you and I mean everything medically related to your needs because we don't always know what those scary words are and he's calming and reassuring very positive. What a great doctor! And he's from my home state what a great way for me to feel comfortable with the practice :)
